Float in a huge sphere of saline water while admiring the peaks rising to more than 3000 meters which serve as a backdrop to the Oetztal valley in the Austrian Tyrol. A real waking dream to live in the Aqua Dome, a thermal area with futuristic architecture. The roof of the thermal baths, a real dome, looks like a giant crystal, vast half-spheres filled with saline water and sulfur water seem to float in the air.

On more than 65,000 m², swimming pools and various basins, saunas, hammams, fitness and rest rooms, massages and treatments, invite you to let go.


Daylight floods into the different rooms from where you can contemplate the panorama or the sky... All is tranquility...


After doing lengths in the swimming pool, head for the three hemispheres that seem to rise skyward to relax in the hot water on the massage beds. Water charged with all the power of the Alps all around, coming from the glacier, flowing into the depths of the earth to enrich itself with sulfur before springing up from a depth of 1856 meters at a temperature of 40°C!

The force of nature also invites itself to the spa: mineral bath, treatments based on alpine herbs, massages with Tyrolean honey, alpine oil, stone pine extracts complete the wide range of classic massages given by specialist therapists. The relaxation is complete: the whole site respects the teachings of feng shui.

To allow children to have fun in the water while preserving the tranquility of adults, a vast space is dedicated to them, the "Alpen Arche Noah" children's world: giant slides, a water park, a pool for all little ones but also a climbing course, a reading and crafts corner and games make for a day full of adventures. Thanks to instructors, parents can quietly enjoy the "adult" facilities.


Guests of the Hôtel des Thermes have access to additional spaces, the SPA. On 2000 m² they enjoy a magnificent sauna with a breathtaking view of the mountains, a pool surrounded by forest mosses, hanging chairs, daybeds around the fireplace...


An underground corridor connects the thermal baths to the hotel.


200 rooms and suites furnished with noble materials in a refined but elegant alpine style invite you to rest. From the bed, the mountain view is breathtaking.


Throughout the hotel, the large bay windows allow you to admire the surrounding nature. Wood, granite, leather and beautiful fabrics create an elegant but warm atmosphere.


Every evening, the kitchen brigade around executive chef Hermann Bayer achieves a feat: making quality rhyme with quantity.


Up to 400 dinners are served offering specialties from the Alpine regions, from the Gulf of Genoa to the Danube via the French and Swiss Jura. “It is a cuisine with peasant roots, based on local and regional products. A cuisine with influences from the different Alpine regions. We base ourselves on traditional recipes while reinterpreting them, without distorting them, believes Hermann Bayer. Typical dishes such as the famous “knödel” know how to be as gourmet as they are light, the “Steckerlfisch” of popular festivals comes in the form of a fillet of trout roasted on a spit. Alpine meadow lamb comes in three variations, stew, roast and grilled sausage.

“The Alps being far from the sea, no sea fish is on the menu, but arctic char, trout and salmon trout, many of which come directly from a fish farm in Längenfeld, continues the chef. Ham, sausages and salamis are delivered by the butcher, cheeses and yoghurts by farmers, bread by the baker. »

Sometimes the chef has fun, for example by preparing nettles like spinach, or icy ficoïde in a salad. For special occasions, Hermann Bayer offers a much more luxurious product, Alpine caviar from Helmut Schlader. “There is a sturgeon farm in Steyrling in Austria. The fish swim in the spring water of the mountains”.


The Aqua Dome in Längenfeld is the perfect starting point for exploring the Oetztal. Impressive waterfalls, wild rivers, peaceful lakes, beneficial thermal waters: the Austrian valley comes in blue and green, colors enhanced by the white of the glaciers. The hotel also offers guided hikes and bike rides, chairlift passes, and bicycles. A little extra: public transport is free.

The Oetztal, formed by glaciers and water, attracts holidaymakers all year round. Skiing, walks, hikes, cycling, rafting, canyoning promise active holidays for everyone. Without forgetting the village of Ötzi: it is in this valley that was discovered, in 1991, Ötzi, the famous man of ice more than 5300 years old.
